Access resources which are available to students that you might not otherwise know about.
Interact professionally with instructors and college personnel.
Attend training workshops on topics related to overcoming barriers which could keep you from succeeding in college.
Weekly workshops are scheduled so students can address any parts of their lives which negatively impact their ability to stay in school. Topics include; effective communication, coping with change, finances, relationships, and many more. Workshops provide a respectful atmosphere
so women can bond and gain support from one another.
